Over 2 Million Summer Infant Baby Bathers Recalled

The baby gear company Summer Infant just announced yesterday that it’s voluntarily recalling over 2 million of it’s Deluxe/Mother’s Touch Baby Bathers due to fall and head injury hazards.

The hazard with the bather involves it’s folding wire frame, which can suddenly fold when the bather is lifted or carried with an infant sitting in it.

Incidentally, the product instructions clearly state that carrying a baby around in the bather is a direct misuse of the product, and this type of activity should never happen in the first place.

To remedy the hazard, Summer Infant is asking that anyone who has a bather to immediately stop use and register to receive a free bather locking strap.

The company also states that even with the locking strap properly in place, it should still never be used to lift or carry an infant.

Affected model numbers included in the voluntary recall are: 08020, 08050, 08054, 08070, 08401, 08409, 08404, 08405, 08650, 08655, 08659, 08754, 08940, 08944, 38510, 38515, 18049, 18120, 18125, 18129, 18360, 18375, 18379, 18390, 38750, 38755, 18440, 18445, 18449, 18470, 18475, 18479, 18050, 08754, 18254, 18394, 18004
